NQT Statutory Formal Induction

L.E.A.D. Equate is a designated Appropriate Body for the formal induction of NQTs. As a registered body, we will undertake all statutory duties, including the NQT’s registration with the TRA. We can offer this for Primary, Secondary and Special Schools and Academies. As an Appropriate Body, we have the main quality
assurance role within the induction process, ensuring schools provide adequate support for their NQTs and that assessment is fair and consistent across institutions. The relevant statutory guidance can be found at www.gov.uk/government/publications/induction-for-newly-qualified-teachers-nqts.  An NQT cannot start
statutory induction until their Appropriate Body has been agreed and the relevant registration paperwork submitted. Schools may work with the Appropriate Body of their choice. Induction cannot be backdated.
